String Orchestra is our largest group and contains violins, violas, celli, and basses. As this is our only string orchestra, students in this class range from very experienced to novice players. There are some very talented leaders who can help less experienced players meet the level of the ensemble.
This ensemble plays at at least four concerts throughout the year, festival, various chamber music opportunities, and Disneyland. For our Winter Concert (in December) and our Pops Concert (in June) String Orchestra combines with our Wind Ensemble to form a full Symphonic Orchestra. Some after school rehearsals are required.
Private lessons are highly beneficial to individuals in this ensemble and are encouraged.
